FYI.....The rum used in the cake looses the alcohol but not the rum used in the glaze. Everyone that has tasted this cake says it's the best Rum Cake.

How To Make rum cake

  • 1
    Pre-heat oven to 350*. Grease and flour a Bundt Cake pan. In a large mixing bowl combine all cake ingredients and blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour into prepared Bundt Cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Make the glaze while the cake bakes.

    In a small saucepan heat water and butter over medium heat. When butter is melted, add sugar and stir. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add Rum.

    When cake is done, turn out onto a 10 inch pie plate immediately upon removal from oven. When cake is nearly cool, poke holes all over ( top, bottom, inside, outside ) using a large meat fork. Then more holes, the better the taste. Pour glaze all over the cake.
